About

At this time, Taylor had been touring all over the US since moving off the East Coast once completing a Bachelors in Environmental Studies from Ramapo College (and getting divorced) in the beginning of 2014, where she focused on Environmental Assessment and Impact Analysis for Natural Gas Distribution and Right of Way management and planning for linear utilities infrastructure.

 

During the completion of her bachelor's degree, Tay was realizing, “Maps are my Medium” a phrase used often while explaining how this career took shape, even today.

 

“There was always a pressure to ‘pick something’, as I enjoy and have experience in geology, ecology, land use, law, planning, hydrology, property, forestry, transportation, infrastructure… not realizing that I already had picked something when I’d manage these environmental assessments by mapping everything out to understand the spatiality of these interactive components. Things that are seemingly irrelevant to one another can be described together in space, whether adjacent or across the globe… Maps are my medium. It is how I think about all these topics that excite me…

 

…and then it became 3D.

So how does Tay do it all?

 

“We are solutions and deliverable oriented-

and never transactional!

Good sh*t sells itself- you will never have to focus on manipulating a sale or grooming your pipeline if your efforts are geared toward completing an end to end workflow, customer satisfaction, and a quality product.”

 

The Map Lady is proud to empower the end user with the correct tools along with a repeatable and clear process for the application they have in mind. Our clients can step out ahead of the game with confidence when they know how to create interoperable data deliverables with useful metadata and documentation of the processes applied…

"If you take the time to meet the in house champions, and provide training and support with their exact use scenario in mind, both the client and the sales team will bring this technology further!"
